As wonderful as red hair is (and boy, do we know it), the bullying of redheads is an all-too-often issue in UK schools. In fact, bullying full stop.
Because we stand out from the crowd, redheads are often victims of ridicule, bullying, or worse. Being picked on for your appearance is harsh and uncalled for in any circumstance, and can really get you down, particularly when you’re growing up.
Anti-Bullying Week is here to spread the word about this issue, running 13-17 November in England, headed by our friends at the Anti-Bullying Alliance.
From getting involved in school activities, to spreading the word on social media, the UK charity’s key message of Anti-Bullying Week 2017 is ‘All Different, All Equal’ – something we can definitely get behind.
Of course, the Anti-Bullying Alliance is pushing to stop bullying 24/7 every day of the year, but the intention of Anti-Bullying Week is to rally up the support of government, schools, parents and children themselves to speak out and to help stop bullying.
